What's Your Story?

By Greg Laurie

 

 

 

"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

 

—Romans 10:17

 

Everyone likes to hear a good story—especially a true story. And when it comes to sharing your faith, one of the most effective tools in your evangelistic toolbox is your personal testimony.

 

A testimony is a powerful bridge builder. It’s a way to connect with your listener so that he or she can see how you came to be who you are and why you believe what you believe. It’s a way to engage people, build a bridge, and help them see how they can come to faith as well.

 

Another great thing about sharing your testimony is that you can indirectly preach the gospel. You can say something like, “Before I was a Christian, my life was going nowhere. There was an emptiness in it, and I wondered what was wrong, what was missing. But one day, I went to a church service and heard the pastor say . . .”

 

Or you might say, “Someone came up to me and shared these words with me. . . . I heard it, I believed it, and I responded to it.”

 

You can actually share the gospel while you are telling your own story. And when you’re done, you can say, “What do you think about that? Have you ever heard that before? Have you ever considered who Jesus is?”

 

What’s your story? Everyone has one. Everyone has a testimony, and every testimony is valid.

 

When you get down to it, every Christian’s testimony is essentially the same. We were all lost. We were all separated from God. We were all guilty and lonely and afraid to die. And we were all on our way to Hell. But Jesus Christ, in His grace, intervened in our lives and transformed us. That is your story, and it is worth telling.
